They are not the funding responsibility of the St. Joseph School District. 1

3 PREPARATION FOR TUTORING A+ student s must demonstrate good citizenship, complete one training session, and have the following documents on file before they may begin earning tutoring hours: A+ Schools Program Participation Agreement A+ Schools Program Tutoring Agreement SOME IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING TUTORING ACTIVITIES - 50 hours minimum in tutoring/mentoring. - 25% (12.5 hours) of the tutoring/mentoring component can be completed through Job Shadowing. All tutoring activities must fall under the following categories. 1. Unpaid and supervised by a certified St. Joseph School District Employee. 2. Held within the St. Joseph School District. 3. Academic in nature. 4. Approved by the school s A+ Coordinator. 5. Turned in to A+ coordinator prior to May 1st of graduation year. Proper documentation is required for any tutoring experience that is to be counted toward the fifty- (50) hour total. A+ students must complete and submit a time sheet for all tutoring/mentoring/job shadowing hours. 1. Tutoring Time s may be picked up in the A+ office. 2. The tutor, appropriate supervisor, and an A+ representative must sign time sheets. 3. Lost time sheets are the responsibility of the student. A+ students are advised to begin earning tutoring hours during the second semester of their freshmen year or the beginning of their sophomore year. All tutoring must be completed by May 1st during the year of graduation. An A+ student s documentation and/or tutoring hours may be audited at any time. A+ students should become familiar with the information in this manual. 2

4 Five Steps to Being an Effective Tutor STEP ONE: Know What is Expected of You as a Tutor Know your responsibilities and duties as a tutor. Arrive at your assigned tutoring site on time. Learn and use the appropriate procedures for signing in and out at your assigned site. Attend regularly! Remember, people are counting on you. Dress and act appropriately. You are a role model! Be prepared for each tutoring session. Become familiar with school rules and classroom procedures. Never criticize the supervising adult or the rules of the classroom during the tutoring session. Treat everyone with respect (administrators, teachers, students, staff, parents, etc.). Be polite. Keep your records up to date and accurate. Turn in the required paperwork. STEP TWO: Setting Up the Tutor Session The better you are prepared, the better you will be able to tutor. Learn the student s name and pronounce it correctly. Make sure your student(s) understands the purpose of tutoring. Try different methods to help the student be successful. Confer with the supervising administrator, counselor, or teacher on a regular basis. STEP THREE: Meeting Your Student s Needs The better you meet your student s needs, the better the session. Be a good listener and establish a good rapport with the student. Build the student s confidence whenever possible. Know the skills you are working on for each student. Never let your student struggle to the point of frustration. Focus on the whole student, not just the academics. Believe in the student and provide positive feedback. 3

5 STEP FOUR: The Ingredients of a Good Tutor Session The following are some of the necessary ingredients for a good session. Give your student(s) your undivided attention during tutoring sessions. Have empathy (not sympathy) with your student s problems. Be honest. Have a sense of humor. Have the ability to lighten up a situation. Interact well with your student; have a give-and-take attitude. Know your student s strengths and weaknesses. Work through your student s strengths to improve his/her weaknesses. Make your student feel good about him/herself and his/her accomplishments. Use mistakes and failures as positive learning experiences. End the session on a positive note. Always keep information CONFIDENTIAL. Student names and/or academic needs are confidential. DO NOT share this information or any other personal information that a student may tell you with anyone other than the adult supervising the tutoring session and/or the A+ Schools Coordinator. STEP FIVE: Ending the Tutoring Session Do not just say good-bye when the session is over. End the session with a positive comment. Confirm the next session. Do any necessary paperwork. Follow checkout procedures, where appropriate. 4

6 Tutoring Strategies 1. Build positive relationships. Kids want you to like them and respect them. It s not how much you know, it s how much you care. 2. Don t take things personally. Sometimes kids say things out of frustration or anger. Be ready to forgive. 3. Be patient, calm, and kind always. 4. Elicit adult help when things are not going well ask for advice or help from the teacher or adult supervisor. 5. Expect students to behave appropriately. Develop strategies to handle inappropriate behavior. Ask for adult help when needed. Do not wait for things to get out of hand before seeking help. 6. Dissect the directions. Underline, circle, highlight, number the steps in assignments directions and check with the student to make sure the directions are understood. 7. Ask students to look at examples. Discuss or work through examples together before tackling that assignment. 8. Check to make sure students have needed materials to complete the task. 9. Let the student do as much as he/she can to build their self-esteem. Let it be their work not yours. 10. Do one or two problems with students then have them do the next one on their own. 11. Give student time to figure out the problem. 5

7 10 Ways to Be a Better Listener 1. Put your body into a listening attitude: be alert, sit straight, and lean into the conversation. 2. Look at the other person. Stay focused on their faces. 3. Try to understand all that the student is communicating; listen for the message that may be hidden behind the words. 4. Do not interrupt. Hear them out before jumping in with your opinions or ideas. Listen even if you DO know what they will say. Poor listeners talk too much. 5. Concentrate. Good listening is focused on the speaker. 6. Listen for the main ideas. 7. React to what is being said. Nod, make comments, and ask questions to let the speaker know you re really listening. 8. Ask questions about what is being said if you are not sure. Ask clarifying questions that lead to better understanding. Use open ended questions Explain that to me How do you think that should be done What could we do to solve this. Avoid questions that require only a one word answer. If you still are not sure your understanding is correct, try saying, "So, if I m hearing you correctly,..." and then state your interpretation. Students can then affirm or contradict your understanding. 9. Get rid of things that distract you; shut out the noise, move to a quieter area if necessary. 10. Avoid giving advice. Advice becomes a roadblock to communication and to critical thinking. 6

8 Student Questioning Strategies Ask students these questions. What do you know? Show me. Tell me. What do you want to know? How can you solve it? How would you do it? What have you learned? What should you change to correct this problem? How is this like the one we did together? Why did you choose that answer? Help me understand how you got that answer. If you were in this situation, what would you do? Use open-ended questions. Avoid questions that require one word answers. 7
